What Kind of Dog Walker Insurance do you need?

Owners can choose from various kinds of dog walker insurance plans. Most of these insurance policies include public liability costs that dog owners would pay otherwise. It is important to understand how public liability works before choosing the policy.

How Does Public Liability Work?

Public liability covers you in case someone from the general public reports property damage or accidental injury because of your pet. This also includes any kind of damage you cause during your work because of your pet.

It is a good idea to get this insurance because dogs are unpredictable. Most of these dogs do not mean harm per se but can cause damage because of minor cases of aggression or attraction towards something. For example, people can trip over tangled leads, which causes most injuries. If a dog causes any kind of damage while a dog walker is walking it, you can be liable to pay it in some states. Others may treat the dog walker as the owner while taking care of it.

Even though the dogs cause the accidents, the caretaker is the one responsible for the damage. It is because the caretaker did not stop the dog in time. This will hit you with compensation, legal fee, and several other expenses, causing thousands of pounds on average.

How much is the Premium for Public Liability Insurance Policy?

The liability on the dog walker or the dog owner varies from region to region. For instance, some regions in UK clear laws for liability in either case. However, the premium amount for dog walker depends on various factors that insurers determine before agreeing to the policy. These factors include the following:

Size of your Business

The size of your business depends on the number of dogs you walk and how frequently you work with dogs. It is because the more you go out with dogs, the more likely you will suffer a public liability. The providers will still provide you with the insurance, just at a higher price.

The amount You Need to Cover

The premiums depend on the amount that you wish to cover. A usual public liability costs around £1000 at least. You can present your required amount to get your corresponding premium amount.

History Claims

Your claim history plays the most vital role in the premium cost calculation. For example, you will have a harder time getting a good premium cost if you have tons of past cases for history claims. Therefore, you must maintain care while dog walking from day one.

Making a claim

We aim to process all claims as smoothly and quickly as possible so you can concentrate on what’s important — your pet business.
